    Really good car. I've driven a decent amount of miles to give an objective review. It has rapid acceleration and the limited slip diff tugs nicely in corners. It comes with Continental Sport Contact 5 tyres, which I found awful as it made wheelspin too easy, and the brakes didn't have much feel. Their wear rate was abysmal, too. I swapped to Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres and they transformed the car – the brake feel is so much better. Ours has the tech pack, the all-round camera superb and it has xenon headlights and more. It's a good option. The gearing is nice and short so you rarely feel the engine labouring. Note you need to put high octane RON 98+ petrol in it (V power or momentum). The gear shift is a bit clunky. It slips into gear well enough, even when cold and overall perfectly adequate, but clunky would be a good way to describe the gearbox. The clutch is a bit heavy too. Also, over-the-shoulder visibility isn't the best (but that's a Juke thing in general, not just the Nismo RS). Also, first is a 'get going' gear. It doesn't do much in first even if you rev it up, but I've found many turbo cars are like this. Overall: It's different, you don't see so many on the road. It's lovely when you keep the engine on the boil, for instance in fourth gear on twisty roads. The body roll isn't as bad as you'd think, given it's a 'tall' car. It has various driving modes (normal is great, sport takes it up 10%, but can make the wheels spin a bit out of junctions, eco makes the car a bit too sluggish). I'd give it 4.5 stars if there was that option.

    Requires higher octane RON98+ petrol. But that makes it special!
